Throughout the 45-day session, legislators debated over a wide range of matters: from COVID-19 restrictions (HB63) , HB182) to water conservation (HB 37 , HB121 , HB168 , etc.). There was also a record funding to Utah’s public school which was increased by nearly $400 million (SB1 , SB2 , HB1, etc.).
Some Bills of Interest
HB374 Restricting access to sensitive materials in schools; SB115 Pre-empting firearm restrictions; SB102 Prohibiting use of phone cameras while in a Motor Vehicle; HB143 Increasing penalty for drunk driving.
While numerous bills, such as the previously mentioned, have been in the spotlight for the past few months, many bills didn’t get the same level of press coverage. Nevertheless, they may be just as important to lobbyists, non-profit organizations, or citizens who are attempting to keep an eye on their legislators.
